This is like a horrory sort of dark melow ambient loop. It is not exactly horror, but it is kinda, just wierd. Uses a lot of chords with 4+ notes in them

Those subs were an absolute PAIN to filter. the whole track was overdriving like crazy and my earphones were rattling. fruity filter is my biggest friend. But then when i fixed that problem, all the other synths went all loud. Also the bass was effecting the other instruments before, but then when i fixed the bass, all the nice effects i put on the other synths changed dramatically. So I kind of had to emulate the bass beforehand, like how it was overdriving, to get that sound for the rest of the synths. 1 day in the life of box-killa....

very chill

its all good, nice and relaxy

i dont like that plucked synth you use though, the first one that comes in, it sounds detuned..a bit too much, which i guess is kinda what you were going for, creepy and all

cut off drums were nice and all could have stayed in a bit longer though, the track kind of petered out b4 it reached any sort of climax

how did you fix the overdriving?

god i feel like some beastie ass drums should pop in and dominate this piece all over the place, i listen to that kind of crap too much

i can hear the bass, but i cant exactly 'feel' it

pretty good dude, could just use a bit more variety in my opinion, mabye introduction of a new instrument

"How did you fix the overdriving" A complex array of filtering and Equalization.

Yeah it is for a dark sorta horror, melow thing for a platformer flash. Yeah so it is not something you would listen to just by itself :D

definately a great!

sounds graveyard-y. which makes it eerie and awesome at the same time. great work!

Perfect but...

I think you have to work a little bit on the sound levels, limit some channels here and there, and the bass a little bit...
this was overdriving my ... headphones, and so there was a lot of hiss and other noises.


Box-Killa responds:

fixed :D No more overdriving. but it was deffinately NOT easy. LOL

Oh man

This is a brilliantly eerie piece. You really captured a dreary, hollow, dark feeling with this song and yet the song as a whole is really peaceful. This reminds me of something off of the Ghosts I-IV album. Great job. Really great job!
